It seems to be that there is only choice between the Takers and the Leavers and is that choice really possible? But what would it mean if we base our assumptions on the choice between Takers and Leavers-mentality and a value-system based on Givers and Receivers-attitude? So that we become more aware of Nature as a Giver and that receiving is included. Instead of trying to get more or less of it.
I didn't write Ishmael to present people with a choice between being Leavers or Takers but to show them why Leavers had (and have) a sustainable way to live while we do not. It's not just a matter of choice, like deciding whether to be a Republican or a Democrat. Being a Leaver is not a matter of attitude. The speech "The New Renaissance" on this website presents (in as concise a form as I've been able to achieve) the future we have to be reaching for.
